Taste like there is some rancid bactericide that has been brewing in this can. Quite a disappointment to my dismay, compared to the overall positive reviews of this pilsner. Has a light mouth feel, a sour malty sweetness. I am just thankful this was given to me for free.

This is not a Czech Pilsner. It lacks the floral and spicy hops.

16 ounce pour $5.25 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Hazed, darkened, burnished gold body in appearance with a scant, white head, but that's due to the usual heavy Taco Mac pour.

Smell: A profuse graininess in the nose with pithy, citric American-born hop notes, though there's a very small slightly herbal, spicy trace in there tipping off some noble hop usage.

Taste: Grainy, husky upfront with restrained hints of biscuit and sweetness. Hops largely display a citric, fruity character, overshadowing the far subtler, faintly spicy noble hop qualities. Moderate bitterness. Drying, grainy, and lightly bitter into the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: This lager carries across more bitterness than, for me, is desired and has a conspicuous raw graininess throughout, leaving me without the crisp, refreshing, inviting lager I'm looking forward to after a long day.

"This is a Bohemian style pilsner that is packed with flavor. Golden in color, this beer comes through with slightly sweet and biscuity malt notes. We used some noble type hops to bitter, then put our twist on it with some Pacific Northwest hops at the end to deliver a slightly citrusy nose. We hope you find this beer not only sessionable, but also very refreshing after a long day." Brewed in the style of a Czech Pilsener. This is one of Red Hare's two debut beers, and one of the two beers they first packaged in 2012. Available in 6 pack and 12 pack cans and on draft wherever Red Hare is distributed.

Poured from a 12 oz. can to a Red Hare pint glass. Served above 48º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, sudsy head of an ecru-white tone over a golden straw yellow body. Clarity is very high, some fine sediment is the only visual imperfection. Retention is below average, lacing is light and spotty and doesn't stick. 2.5

(Smell) Aromas of toasty biscuit malt, mild caramel grain sweetness. The aroma is a bit sweet in the malt profile but there isn't a lot to say about the hop profile aside from some muted floral notes. Very clean and balance is 2.75

(Taste) Medium biscuit malts with a moderate viscosity. Finishes with a toasted grain malt and a mellow juiciness. While not out of balance as the aroma suggested, the end result is still unremarkable, very dull with no hop presence. 3

(Mouthfeel) Slick, soft, clean texture. Carbonation doesn't impact texture much. Body is medium for the style. Alcohol presence is light+. 3

(Overall) Given how much I have enjoyed Red Hare's reserve releases, I'm a bit surprised that this beer isn't nearly as enjoyable. Dull, overly sweet and out of balance, there's nothing redeeming enough in Long Day Lager to recommend this beer to friends. 2.75
